RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph baseball team held their annual senior night game on Wednesday May 23, and punctuated the evening with a 10-6 victory over Kinnelon.

“Today you could tell this game really meant something to the seniors, they played really hard and I was really happy to see that,” said coach Doug Anderson .  “Pitching wise, Cameron Mchale and Brett Flynn stood out, and position player wise Brendan Lowery and Elvis Lopez were key to the win.”

Anderson threw five pitchers in the game, who collectively scattered 12 hits while striking out 10.  McHale started the game and earned the victory.

The win pushed the Rams record back over .500, to 9-8, in what has been an erratic year for Andersons’ squad.

“There are ups and downs every season, this year because of the weather and other factors, it was a very difficult,” said Anderson.  “We only had 4 practices on our field in the month of April, but the seniors found a way to hang in there.  I truly feel sorry for all of them because this weather cheated them out of more games and practices outside. To their credit, they found a way to remain competitive.”

After the pre-game ceremony saw the senior players announced with their parents onto the field, the Rams jumped out of the gate and loaded the bases four batters in.  They pushed two across the plate for a quick 2-0 lead, and by the end of the third inning they were up 7-0.

Lowery was 2-for-2, stole three bases and scored four runs in the game, while Lopez went 2-for-2 with three RBI.  Mike Ippolito and Ryan McDermott also had two hits apiece in the game for Randolph.

Anderson offered some parting words for his soon to be graduated seniors.

“I would hope myself and the coaching staff have been able to convey life lessons through baseball about teamwork, dedication, and commitment,” said Anderson.  “These are qualities that they can apply to their future lives that will help them become quality citizens in communities all over the country/world.”

Anderson then added, “And no matter what, always find time to smile and have fun, just know when's the right time to do it.”
